Kommissar X number V.
After a daring escape, ruthless thief Arthur Hillary (Franco Fantasia) pays a visit to Montreal, home of his identical twin brother Robert (also played by Fantasia), the only person who knows the whereabouts of a cache of stolen jewels worth $3milllion. On Arthur's trail is American cop Capt. Tom Rowland (Brad Harris), and private investigator Jo Walker (Tony Kendall), who is working for the company that insured the jewels.
Euro-crime flick Kill Panther Kill, the fifth in the Kommissar X series, is a fairly unexceptional caper for stars Harris and Kendall, with the pair once again doing their antagonistic partnership routine, and director Gianfranco Parolini delivering the bog standard ingredients: pretty ladies, fist-fights, shootouts, crosses and double crosses, and car chases.
Despite some local colour in the form of the 1967 International and Universal Exposition in Montreal, and two enjoyably daft fight scenes (a silly punch-up against members of judo club and an even more ridiculous gun-fight against some henchmen in a builder's yard), the film is unremarkable nonsense that quickly wears out its welcome.
4.5 out of 10, generously rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
